Description Prasad J Pandit 2013-11-22 12:53:51 UTC
Linux kernel built with a Adaptec RAID controllers support(CONFIG_SCSI_AACRAID)
is vulnerable to a invalid pointer dereference flaw. It could occur while doing an ioctl(2) call with a FSACTL_SEND_RAW_SRB command.

A privileged(CAP_SYS_ADMIN) user/program could use this flaw to make kernel dereference invalid pointer which results in kernel crash (DoS) or could, potentially, result in privilege escalation.

Comment 5 Petr Matousek 2013-11-26 11:54:21 UTC
Statement:

The Red Hat Security Response Team does not consider this issue to be a security flaw due to the full root-like privileges (CAP_SYS_ADMIN) needed for successful exploitation.
